Assured Course Graduation 2021

This year sees the first students from InterHigh graduate from our wide range of City & Guilds Assured Courses.

We are so proud of the standard of work that has been produced by pupils and we celebrated their efforts and successes on Friday 14th May, in the first ever Graduation event for Assured Course students.

There are 7 subjects currently available as two-year courses in KS4. They are:

Assured Courses are Project Based Learning courses that build on the critical, higher order, thinking skills and a range of interpersonal and social skills such as research and presentation, project development and time management.

The aim of each course is to build skills and confidence whilst promoting independent thought and research. In each course students gain transferable skills for future studies and higher education whilst building a portfolio of work that they can show to a future employer or to support an application to further study.

Although students are given the skills and guidance needed to complete each project, the responsibility for the development of ideas, reflection, and the building of their portfolio is completely theirs. Students have worked independently throughout their courses to produce work of the highest calibre across all subject areas through self-assessment and reflection leading to improvement.

Take a look at some of the amazing work students on our assured courses have been producing:

 

Year 11 Assured Art

Futurescapes: Reimagining the urban landscape through illustration.

Students must research various artists and artworks and create personal responses to this research using the theme ‘Futurescapes: reimagining the urban landscape through illustration’. Students produce a research presentation, essay and portfolio of experiments. Students will use their research, exploration, and analysis to then explore ideas for an individual and unique response to the theme by producing a final piece.

 

Year 11 Assured Photography

Reflections: Exploring light and reflection through lens-based media.

Students must research various photographers who use reflection in their work and create personal responses to this research using the theme, ‘Reflections: Exploring light and reflection through lens-based media’. Students will use their research, exploration, and analysis to then explore ideas for an individual and unique response to the theme by producing a final piece.

 

Year 11 Art and Design in Action

 

Year 11 Assured Computer Game Design

The Assured courses lend themselves to a more authentic assessment style, rather than testing memory, and give a true reflection of students’ capabilities. It is a style of learning that promotes skills that can be more readily transferred into the world of work and our students have performed at the highest level. Well done Year 11!
